Live: Boris Johnson on England's new covid tougher tiers.

Boris Johnson on England's new covid tougher tiers.

The PM has completed his two-week self-isolation period and will join health experts for a Number 10 Covid-19 briefing on the new post-lockdown tiers on Thursday.

Earlier at Commons, Matt Hackcock announced London and Liverpool will go into Tier 2 next week and Manchester, Birmingham and Newcastle into Tier 3.

There are 31 in the highest level, 38 areas in the middle Tier 2, and just three parts of England will be under the lowest level of restrictions.

More than 99 per cent of the country will be in the top two tiers - and just the Isle of Wight, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly in the lowers Tier 1.

The Government's postcode checker crashed this morning as thousands of people tried to see what their new tiers would be.

Matt Hancock unveiled the new tiers this morning in the House of Commons - confirming the 'stay at home' order will end, and shops, gyms and personal care will reopen.
